Lockout over Spring Training has started and silly season for FA has begun

Braves traded for Matt Olson who grew up in Atlanta suburbs (same HS as Jeff Francoeur), ending Freddie Freeman tenure in Atlanta. A tough and unpopular decision but in long run may be beneficial to a team that has a hard budget each year.

Yankees acquired Josh Donaldson.

I predict that baseball will continue to fade into irrelevance.

universal DH ( ) and banning defensive shifts next year? Gross. I have a hard time being excited for MLB now.

I'm dubious at best on the pitch clock, too.

Joey Votto was mic'd up for an inning last night in the field and the announcers were interviewing him during the game. It was pretty fantastic but I wouldn't want my players distracted on the field.

ah yes baseball, the sport where you have to be laser-focused from the second you step on the field because the action never stops! it's not like the first basemen ever talks to the ump/opposing players/first base coach when the game is going on.

I think the mic’d player thing is pretty cool and very doable in baseball unlike pretty much any other major sport.

The Reds are hilariously bad. 3-22. Team average of .201. Team ERA of 6.68. Opponents are hitting .281 against them.

Isn't he an interim manager?

Winker will get an extra game or two for doing his Stone Cold Steve Austin impersonation.

I don't blame winker at all for what he did. Hell I'm amazed he didn't punch Nevin in the face. Fucking manager changed his starting pitcher hours before the game to an opener to explicitly throw at multiple guys. Fucking clown show Angels. Hell they should suspend the goddamn umpire crew chief for letting all this shit happen. The scrub had already thrown a fastball behind a guys head in the first inning, it was painfully clear he was headhunting on orders from his boss.

Also lol winker apologized for flipping off the fans, especially the women and children. Lololol

A girl bought Winker a pizza from Grub Hub to be delivered to the stadium. The driver has been tipped by Mariners fans over 500 times.

Nevin got 10 games (which is pretty heavy for a manager)
Winker got 7 (he probably got 2 additional for gesture) He's appealing probably will be reduced to 4 or 5


Other Notable
Rendon (who is out for year) got 5 that he will have to serve next year.


Doesn't change the fact that both teams are not having great years. The Angels are Trout and Ohtani and a bunch of bums. The Mariners have a ton of injuries and have not really been good this year.

Agreed, but I think that was the max they could go.

Freddie Freeman fired his agent (about 6 months too late) he has apparently irked his new Dodger teammates with how he reacted in Atlanta this past weekend.

Padres getting Soto and Bell. Wow.

Meanwhile. DeGrom gets to face the Nats tonight with no Bell or Soto in the lineup.

Scherzer, Rendon, Turner, Soto, Harper all gone from that 2019 WS team.

Braves are a pretty unreal pace right now

Yep. Still don’t think they have time to catch NY. The Mets schedule to end the year is favorable to say the least.

Mets down to Phillies now, about to start a 2 game set with NYY. Meanwhile the Braves are up on the Stros and starting a series with the Pirates next.

Mets should have Scherzer and deGrom pitching vs NYY though. Wouldn’t be totally shocking if by Wednesday it’s tied. But after this stretch (vs ATL, PHI, NYY) the Mets schedule definitely lightens up.

I’m a Mets fan but it’d be really hard to bet against the Braves winning the NL right now. Especially if Soroka is coming back. Should be fun. LAD, ATL, NYM are all very very very good

As a neutral observer, that was one of the best games of the year.

@dplennon

Outside of about 6 teams, the NL is pretty shitty. So even with the Mets super easy schedule to end the season, the Braves isn’t much harder. September is gonna be fun. And stressful.

The Mets are going to choke. Scherzer's age is catching up to him, he broke down last year in playoffs. DeGrom is your best hope but he can really only pitch once every 5 days.

^^ is it really choking if both teams win 100 games?

Since the Mets 10.5 game lead on 6/1 their record is still 51-33. First half the season Mets win % was .624. Second half win % so far is .643. That’s not choking. Thats just getting caught by a really good team that is insanely hot…and that’s if the Mets get caught, which hasn’t happened yet.

I for one would like it if the Braves would be just lose a couple games. Not a lot. Just every now and then. That’s all I’m asking.
